Barnard Castle Prep School

The Prep School is an integral part of Barnard Castle School, having access to all its facilities and expertise.

It is situated in a separate area of the school grounds with its own organisation, staff and buildings. Pupils, therefore, have the benefit of the security of their own area while benefiting from many extras.
